I can't unzip any .zip file on the Plesk files manager? it always gives me this error message:

However, I can add files to archive.
I did exactly the steps proposed in a similar issue here but no luck.

Resolver VI

Hello Khairy,

I hope you are well. There may be a technical issue. 


You can unzip any .zip files on your hosting account.

  1. Login into your Plesk shared hosting account.
  2. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  3. Click Plesk Admin.
  4. Click the File tab.
  5. Select the file you want to unzip, click More, and then click Extract Files.
  6. Click OK.

After unzipping them, you might want to move the files.

Excuse me! How is this helpful? You just copied the answer from the link I posted which I said it didn't help at all? The link is just explaining how to extract a file while my problem happens right when I hit extract? How is this considered an answer?

Plesk new version is not supported. Means you can't extract zip file.
